Port Canaveral
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We hired a cab and asked to be taken to Cocoa Village--this is an older section of the "port" that my husband discovered on the internet. Lots of little shops that have antiques to local crafts--we found several items we really liked. Our taxi driver gave us his phone number so we could call him when we were ready to leave--good thing, too--we saw no cabs in the village area! This area is somewhat off the beaten path but well worth the trip--only 14 miles from the cruise ship but not as "tourist" oriented as some of the other areas.

We had been in Nassau previously and had not been very impressed by the shopping area. This time we decided to hire a taxi for a short tour of the area. Our driver was excellent--he took us all over the island of New Providence and introduced us to the various sections of the area. We toured the poorest areas to the middle class areas and got within sight of the upper class, gated communities. He gave us a wonderful overview of the social, economic, and historical background of the town of Nassau and the surrounding area. the 2 and 1/2 hour tour cost $25 per person and also included a brief tour of Paradise Island and a stop at Atlantis.
